Suge Knight and Katt Williams are two peas in a pod … Rather two peas in cuffs.
The L.A. County District Attorney’s Office confirmed that both men were arrested on Wednesday and charged with felony robbery after apparently stealing a female photographer’s camera while in Beverly Hills. According to the D.A.’s, the alleged incident took place on September 5 outside a music studio. The occurrence happened just days after Knight was released from the hospital after being shot multiple times during Chris Brown’s pre-MTV VMA’s party.
Williams was taken into custody when he arrived to an Inglewood, California courthouse to be arraigned in separate assault case. As for Suge, the Death Row Records co-founder was arrested in Las Vegas.
If convicted, Knight could face up to 30 years to life behind bars due to his previous conviction for assault with a deadly weapon. As for Katt, the comedian could face up to seven years in prison.
“Mr. Knight was unaware that there was any warrant,” Knight’s attorney, Richard Schonfeld told NBC News. “We will be addressing the circumstances in court.”
According to the District Attorney’s Office, they will ask for bail to be set at $1 million for Knight and $75,000 for Williams.
In April 2013, HipHollywood caught up with Williams to talk about his previous string of legal woes, including his multiple arrests, battery charges and child endangerment charges. “I fit a lot of profiles,” he told us. “If I had to figure out whether to an officer just passing by me if I look more criminal in nature or if I look more law abiding in nature, I can see the officer going ‘yeah, let’s check him,'” he told us.
“My job is not to alter my life’s path. If it runs into trouble, the trouble it is. I’m unfortunate that sometimes that things happen to me in rapid succession.”
